May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2018/19) there are twenty two children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Lynne Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development

-Literacy

-Mathematics

-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

May Hill classroom will be a riot of colour in terms 3 and 4 as we explore Colour, Shape and Pattern. We will be looking at the work of some famous artists and producing our own masterpieces by using a range of media. In maths we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and investigating fractions and money when playing in our Pizzeria. We will be using the local area to spot colours, shapes and patterns and using technology to record what we find. In R.E. we will be studying what it means to be Jewish and visiting a synagogue. We will be making our own instruments in music and using them to make rhythm patterns and sing songs. In english we will write poems and enjoy the Elmer the Elephant stories.

Don't forget to look at the topic board in the corridor to see how busy we are.
